A few months ago, the legendary blouse master Alain Figaret introduced a chic and sporty collection for the 24 du Mans. He comes back this summer with a look book defying the traditional masculine and feminine fashion separation, for an urban and resolutely contemporary look.
A graphic and coloured season 2014 for Alain Figaret
The French blouse master opened his first boutique in 1970, rue Longchamp in Paris. The brand has a promising start. Six years after that the creator launched a specialised boutique rue de la Paix, which rapidly became the brand’s flagship store. Still today, Alain Figaret is the reference in the business and relaxed blouse and shirts sector.
For this summer, the fashion designer returned with a catalogue of arty everyday wear and coloured prints, revisiting with elegance the classic shirt? The automobile spirit, important to the creator and having inspired his previous collection, was kept as a common thread in the different models.
From classical to surprising shirts
For the new season, Alain Figaret varied between stripes and geometrical patterns for a retro look intelligently though out. Despite the colours being rather dark, they are combined with audacious dynamics and adjusted lines which modernise the collection. Shirts being first of all unisex, the brand plays with the border between feminine and masculine throughout its androgynous creations.
Masculine, the timeless business shirts retains its usual overstitched collar and its mother of pearl buttons. The model, both simple and elegant, is nonetheless a must-have amongst every day wear for Figaret men.
The brand also revisited the feminine blouse to make it casual wear.
Amongst the numerous pieces of Figaret shirts, a new model was launched in the female collection : Elise. The blouse is adorned with a large coloured line. Its roll-up sleeves adopting the military style perfectly illustrate this season’s fashion trends.
Alain Figaret won its bet by reviving the luxury shirts.
